    This looks like a very inspirational series of talks. Will there be a synopsis for those of us who cannot attend? I shall definitely let my daughter know about this and maybe she can get away for a few hours. I don’t know how you all are making it this cold cold winter!!…lots of ideas must be brewing for the spring.

    Hi Kackie, we have some very interesting topics for this year’s lecture series. 5 of the speakers are professionals within their particular area of the gardening world and will bring a level of knowledge and expertise to the talks. Sondra Freckelton is a professional painter and I enjoyed her talk last year on how gardening influenced her painting and how painting influenced her gardening. And I am looking forward to Diana Hall’s talk where its always nice to see photos of famous gardens. It’s been a brutal winter, but the light has changed and there is that promise of spring. Best, Don
